"If you're the strongest person at your gym, then you need to find a new gym." I bet you've heard this at least a couple of times by now, what are your views on that? I'm guessing something along the lines of intrinsic motivation etc etc? That being said, you do have pretty big ass goals.
Ain't no piece of cake.
Oh and note to self, get a decently good deadlift, wait till age strikes you down and travel all the way to your gym and wait till you wear that hoodie and challenge you, for $50. Oh who am I kidding haha?
